His family trace its lineage back to the tribe of Quraysh. He was taught by Ibn Taymiyya and Al-Dhahabi. Upon completion of his studies he obtained his first official appointment in , when he joined an inquisitorial commission formed to determine certain questions of heresy. He married the daughter of Al-Mizzi , one of the foremost Syrian scholars of the period, which gave him access to the scholarly elite.
In he was made preacher khatib at a newly built mosque in Mizza, the hometown of his father-in-law. In , he rose to a professorial position at the Great Mosque of Damascus. In later life, he became blind. He died in February AH in Damascus. He was buried next to his teacher Ibn Taymiyya. Ibn Kathir shares some similarities with his teacher Ibn Taymiyyah, such as advocating a militant jihad and adhering to the renewal of one singular Islamic ummah.
He states that:. People have said a great deal on this topic and this is not the place to expound on what they have said. On this matter, we follow the early Muslims salaf : Malik , Awza'i , Thawri , Layth ibn Sa'd , Shafi'i , Ahmad ibn Hanbal , Ishaq Ibn Rahwayh , and others among the Imams of the Muslims, both ancient and modern that is, to let the verse in question pass as it has come, without saying how it is meant min ghayr takyif , without likening it to created things wa la tashbih , and without nullifying it wa la ta'til : The literal meaning zahir that occurs to the minds of anthropomorphists al-mushabbihin is negated of Allah, for nothing from His creation resembles Him: "There is nothing whatsoever like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing" Qur'an  .
Many Sunni Muslims hold his commentary as the best after Tafsir al-Tabari  and it is highly regarded especially among Salafi school of thought. His suspicion on Isra'iliyyat possibly derived from Ibn Taimiyya's influence, who discounted much of the exegetical tradition since then. His tafsir gained widespread popularity in modern times, especially among Western Muslims, probably due to his straightforward approach, but also due to lack of alternative translations of traditional tafsirs.
It is a brief textual history of the Quran and its collection after the passing of Muhammad. Henri Laoust regards it primary as a philological work and "very elementary". Norman Calder describes it as narrow-minded, dogmatic, and skeptical against the intellectual achievements of former exegetes.
His concern is limited to rate the Quran by the corpus of Hadith and is the first, who flatly rates Jewish sources as unreliable, while simultaneously using them, just as prophetic hadith, selectively to support his prefabricated opinion. Otherwise, Jane Dammen McAuliffe regards this tafsir as, deliberately and carefully selected, whose interpretation is unique to his own judgment to preserve, that he regards as best among his traditions.
